Buckled Bridges Using Film Stress for Three-Dimensional Structures: Effects of Lateral Designs on Vertical Profiles and Dynamic Characteristics
Bridges buckled by film stress call generate a vertical displacement resulting in three-dimensional structures. We have demonstrated a micromirror lifted by buckled bridges and a vertical comb drive actuator. The structures show rounded profiles in a stable manner. The detailed profiles of the bridges and the lifted micromirrors are examined. The relations between the lateral design and its effect on the vertical profile and the dynamic characteristics are studied.
